Liverpool travel to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday in the Premier League, with both teams taking a point after a 1-1 draw.
At half-time, Liverpool were 1-0 up thanks to another goal from Daniel Sturridge, who tapped home after good play between Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez down the right channel.
However, a dreadful error from Kolo Toure handed Victor Anichebe the equaliser on a plate midway through the second half.

First half analysis
Foster: Not much he could do about the goal. Has made one good save from a corner.
Jones: Cissokho has done him down the outside a couple of times. Not offered much in attack.
McAuley: One vital interception to prevent an almost certain goal.
Olsson: Wasn't really getting close to Suarez and went off injured.
Ridgewell: Being given a torrid afternoon so far.
Yacob: Earned a yellow card inside 15 minutes for three fouls. Nice passing but defensively given the run-around so far.
Mulumbu: The better of West Brom's midfielders, getting around the pitch to good effect.
Brunt: Barely involved in build-up play, little delivery so far.
Gera: Shown some good movement and has had his team's best shot at goal.
Berahino: Trying to break infield to support attack but not much to go on.
Vydra: Can't get his passing right and not much service or support.
Mignolet: Very comfortable and hasn't had a shot to deal with.
Flanagan: Aside from giving the ball away once, has had another solid half.
Skrtel: Continuing his recent form with a dominant first-half display.
Toure: Poor concentration. Given the ball away twice in midfield, poor long passing, needs to step up.
Cissokho: Has had a good half. Providing an outlet down the left, good defensively. Lacking delivery though.
Gerrard: Superb again, making numerous interceptions and blocks and very reliable passing.
Henderson: Offering himself in transitions but not really impacting the game too much.
Coutinho: If he gets his decision-making right he could end the game as a contest. Picking good positions but giving the ball away.
Sterling: Best player in the first half. Pace, driving runs, a real aggressive threat.
Suarez: Linking play nicely and created the goal. Not a threat in the box yet though.
Sturridge: Scored the goal and has shown good movement.
Second half analysis
Foster: Made two comfortable saves and one vital one from Suarez at 1-0.
Jones: Improved defensively after the break.
McAuley: Almost scored at one end and largely solid at the other.
Godin: Turned in knots by the front two at times.
Ridgewell: Never got to grips with his man, beaten every time.
Yacob: Very much a passenger in the game.
Mulumbu: Probably West Brom's best player, broke up attacks well and looked to support attacks.
Gera: Faded after the break though kept working the right flank.
Brunt: Hopeless delivery from set pieces and open play, really poor game overall.
Vydra: Worked hard but had no service.
Berahino: Not the best game of his short career.
Mignolet: Great save to deny McAuley, left exposed for equaliser.
Flanagan: Did well defensively but didn't offer enough going forward.
Skrtel: Defended well on the ground, gave away free kicks in aerial challenges.
Toure: Arguably the worst individual performance of the season from a Liverpool player. Gave away two vital points with a horrendous mistake, following the pattern of his entire 90 minutes.
Cissokho: A good outlet but no real end product.
Gerrard: Dominated the midfield from a defensive point of view but set piece delivery lacking.
Coutinho: Disappointing end product after seeing so much of the ball. Deservedly subbed, ultimately.
Henderson: Again, saw a lot of the ball but offered little. Not enough control from the midfield.
Sterling: Liverpool's best player, always looking to attack and beat his man. Did well at wing-back, too.
Sturridge: No chances second half and couldn't create danger either.
Suarez: Should have killed the game with a big chance, wasn't his day today.
